Rugged and Durable Backpack
I have used an Incase Compact 17" backpack for about 2 years. My biggest gripe was that all the seams were tearing and the constru I have used an Incase Compact 17" backpack for about 2 years. My biggest gripe was that all the seams were tearing and the construction just felt like cheap nylon. I also didn't have a place to put my water bottle. As a college student who spends 8 hours on campus everyday, I need to bring all my gear with me. Including snacks and water. The Thule 21L Backpack has storage capacity for all that and more. It has room for about 2 1" binders. My 15" MBP non-retina fits snug. My iPad mini fits snug as well. There is a side zipper towards the backside of the backpack to access your iPad without having to open the main compartment. The construction of all the straps and just the material of the backpack itself feels really durable. I can lift the backpack with my gear in it without worrying if the strap is going to rip at the seams. The backpack is relatively thin as well with all the aforementioned gear in it. Overall the Thule 21L backpack is sturdy and "pocketful" backpack that I do not regret purchasing. …

Broke after one year
Was a great looking bag but built very cheaply. Within a few months the seams on outside pocket came undone, and after a year the Was a great looking bag but built very cheaply. Within a few months the seams on outside pocket came undone, and after a year the zipper broke off completely. I wish Thule would make their bags more rugged, which is what you might expect. This is not the case. They are super fragile, in face more issues that other brands. …

Not as good as I expected
I have used this backpack for two months. It's true that this is a backpack with good capacity for every day Uni life. I use it to I have used this backpack for two months. It's true that this is a backpack with good capacity for every day Uni life. I use it to carry my 13" Mac Book Pro, ipad3, one or two textbooks and some cables. But seems that the straps can not handle that heavy weight, one of them has broken already.
Because of that, I am looking for a new backpack now, and I will never choose this brand ever.
By the way, the traps are really uncomfortable!!! …

How many books would it hold? And would it be a good bag for the typical college student?
- Asked by Tyler H from Culloden
I don't know what is "typical", but this is a spacious pack that you can easily put a couple of text I don't know what is "typical", but this is a spacious pack that you can easily put a couple of text books in along with your laptop / charger and a couple of accessories. If you're not a real geek like me and don't need to carry around external blu-ray drives and game controllers, cables, etc, then I'm sure you'll get a lot of books in there.
You could always return it if it doesn't meet your needs - or maybe check it out in person out at an Apple store first. …

My Macbook Pro Retina 15" is in a Moshi shell, then in an Acme neoprene sleeve, and still slides in and out of the protected laptop pocket here with no issues.
